1 Peter 5
He exhorteth the elders to feed their flocks,
1 Peter 5:1 The elders which are among you, I exhort, whiche am also an elder, & a wytnesse of the afflictions of Christe, and also a partaker of the glory that shalbe opened: 1 Peter 5:2 Feede you God his flocke, whiche is committed vnto you, takyng the ouersight of them not as compelled therto, but wyllyngly, not for the desyre of fylthy lucre, but of a good mynde: 1 Peter 5:3 Not as though ye were Lordes ouer God his heritage: but that ye be an ensample to the flocke. 1 Peter 5:4 And when the chiefe shephearde shall appeare, ye shall receaue an incorruptible crowne of glory.
the younger to obey,
1 Peter 5:5 Likewise ye younger, submit your selues vnto the elder: Submit your selues euery man one to another, decke your selues inwardly in lowlynes of mynde: For God resisteth the proude, and geueth grace to the humble. 1 Peter 5:6 Submit your selues therfore vnder the mightie hande of God, that he may exalt you when the tyme is come. 1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your care vpon hym, for he careth for you.
and all to be sober, watchful, and constant in the faith:
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, & watche, for your aduersarie the deuyll, as a roaryng Lion walketh about seking who he may deuour:
to resist the cruel adversary the devil.
1 Peter 5:9 Whom resist stedfast in the fayth, knowyng that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the worlde. 1 Peter 5:10 But the God of all grace whiche hath called vs vnto his eternall glory by Christe Iesus, shal his owne selfe, after that ye haue suffred a litle affliction, make you perfite, setle, strength, and stablyshe you. 1 Peter 5:11 To hym be glory and dominion, for euer and euer. Amen. 1 Peter 5:12 By Syluanus a faythfull brother, vnto you, as I suppose, haue I wrytten briefly, exhortyng and testifiyng, howe that this is the true grace of God, wherin ye stande. 1 Peter 5:13 The Churche that is at Babylon elected together with you, saluteth you, and so doeth Marcus my sonne. 1 Peter 5:14 Greete ye one another with the kysse of loue. Peace be with you all which are in Christe Iesus. Amen.
